See...I *told* ya.

Was I right? Happy weekend post time... (And points to whomever can name the movie my blog post title comes from.)

I LOVE weekends. Last night was fantastic. I love low-key fun time with the family; last night we got together to play a bunch of board games. It does get competitive, but if you're going to learn a new game, it's good to be familiar with the people you're with so you kind of know reactions and strategy types. I ended up buying a game called Curses. I've never actually played it, but I've heard from several people that it's hilarious and good for big groups. Exactly my kind of thing! I get it tomorrow. People will need to come play it with me...

And then, today was fabulous. I love hanging out with the new ward (it really is getting easier!). AND I LOVE WATERSKIING. Our ward had a big activity where we went waterskiing up at Pineview Reservoir. Well, wakeboarding...basically the same. I'm no pro, but I can get up and stay up for awhile. The water was a little choppy, but I was not complaining.

Boat + Water + Sun + Fun people + Food = Complete satisfaction. I don't get to go very often, so I just soak it in when I have a chance to go out on the lake and feel that wind in my hair. I was sitting on the boat today thinking, "Man, can't this moment just last forever? I would like to freeze time for just a little bit so I can relish the greatness." It was one of those times where you can just feel the real world slip away.

I got a little sun. I ate a hot dog. I got to meet new people. Basically, Veni Vidi Vici. I wish I had gotten some pictures of the crazy times we had. I almost got dragged into the water as we were playing 500 (that takes me back...and yes, I do throw like a girl). I learned how to play hacky sack ('learned' is a strong word...I kind of sucked). I got to sink my toes into wet sand and take a nap in the shade. I hereby declare that all weekends should include boats.
